MotorGuide Prop Compatibility Guide
One of the great thing about MotorGuide trolling motors is that nearly all of their lower motor units are standardized at 3.5”, which makes changing or upgrading your prop incredibly easy! Instead of trying to figure out which sized trolling motor prop is compatible with your motor, you can focus on selecting a prop that matches your needs. Additionally, all props use the same MotorGuide Prop Nut Kit. Listed below is a summary of MotorGuide's props and a description of their individual strengths.
Note: If you have a Thruster Edition motor or a R3 series RT 30 (R3-30 HT), your motor may take the smaller 3” MotorGuide Power Prop. We recommend contacting MotorGuide directly to ensure you get the right propeller.
